Hornets Colts won a friendly against St Cobs, after their National Cup match against Reading Abbey was conceded.

Hornets Colts were keen to play a friendly after their National Cup game opposition, Reading Abbey conceded.

Newly-formed St Cobs offered Hornets a game they were keen to impress. St Cobs are a team made up of St Brendans, Cotham Park and Old Bristolians, who have joined forces to keep the boys playing Colts rugby.

Hornets though proved too strong and too organised for this new team, scoring 12 tries to two and winning 82-12.

Good work by Meaghan, Hitchens, Haynes and Humphris set up Charlton to score a well-worked try. Miell and Holyday both scored tries, with all three converted by Humphris.

Further first-half tries were touched down by Middleton, Holyday and Constable, with all three converted by Humphris.

After the break, new boys Swarby and Frost showed they will only strengthen the team. Haswell found himself in space and the prop surged for the line, but was stopped short before Constable got another, converted by Humphris.

More tries were scored by Eades, Francis and Middleton, all converted by the accurate Humphris.

The biggest cheer of the day belonged to the home side, who intercepted a pass to score.

Debutant Devon Frost brushed off would-be tacklers to go over and skipper Hancock surged through and Keane Williams was quick enough to go over. The final try of the game went to St Cobs as their winger outstripped Hornets’ defence.
